What's Faster Our Builds or Dell's H2C?

Benchmark Results

Please note that Don "Monitor Lizard" Woligroski's low-cost overclocking system used a lower-cost monitor with a maximum resolution of 1600x1200. Don couldn't justify purchasing a $600 flat-panel display to use with an Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 and a single graphics card, and wasn't able to requisition Shelton's lab sample.

3D Games

Doom 3

Doom 3 loves our overclocked high-end configuration, even though it "only" uses a dual-core CPU and unaltered graphics card clocks. Equally impressive is that Don's combination of graphics and CPU overclocking pushed the performance of his single-card configuration beyond that of our high-end system at stock speeds.
